"I like burnt velvet therefore I jumped at this dress (for the good price, too).
Upon receiving and trying, I was a bit disappointed and decided to send it back.
I have no problem with the material. The front is double layer therefore it isn't too transparent. The burnt out pattern is art deco-ish and lovely.
However, the cut is only flattering for tall, boyish built, or itsy bitsy tiny frame gals. No matter how you tie the ties in the back, the straps and arm holes don't flatter the upper body (or my upper body, being short and average weight).
Size S is fine on me (125lb). I can put it on and take it off no problem (no zipper). The bodice isn't too roomy or too tight. If you are bigger bone or slim (under 110), you should get M or XS to have a better fit."

Review 2 for Sparkle & Fade Geo Burnout Velvet Dress
"This dress is very gorgeous.. However, it is really thin and the quality is plain cheap. I sure feel bad for those who bought it at full price. AND the one I received was coming out at both seams! Good thing I can fix things like that. But come on, don't send people ripped clothes!"
